New AMD FirePro Graphics card keeps crashing

Hi,

 

I have 12 Monitor setup that is run by three  ATI FirePro 2460 GDDR3 512 MB cards.

 

Each card has 4 ports so each runs 4 monitors. I have been using this setup or last 5 years for displaying stock charts & using other regular applications including playing YouTube & regular videos. I DO NOT play any games at all.

 

I never had any problem with setup for last 5 years.

 

Recently one of the cards died so I bought a new one. But new one has identical specs except it has GDDR5 instead of GDDR3.

 

Now whenever I play YouTube videos, the new card crashes after few minutes. So 4 monitors that are connected to that video card goes blank & also keyboard & mouse freezes.

 

So I have to shut down the CPU using start button & Restart it & again all 12 monitors start working.

 

But then if I play YouTube videos, new card crashes after a while. Crashing time is random.

 

What seems to be a problem ? Is it because new card has GDDR5 instead of GDDR3 that other two cards have & thus it is not compatible with two other cards ? All cards are identical except the new one has GDDR5 instead of GDDR3.

 

Please help.

 

Thank you.
